RTP and the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol


Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo, Toronto, Canada, July .


We describe how the new Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) can be used as a bearer for the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) to provide a congestion controlled basis for networked multimedia applications. This is a step towards deployment of congestion control for such applications, necessary to ensure the future stability of the best-effort network if high-bandwidth streaming and IPTV services are to be deployed outside of closed QoS-managed networks.
